Confidence and Courage

Here was an unusual pair . . .  within an hour of each other;  Thor Confidence arrived, escorted by Justine McAllister and   Capt. Brian A. . . . and a bit later, a very light Thor Courage, escorted by Ava M. McAllister,   headed out for sea. Built in 2009 and 2008, respectively, the […]

June Thirtyfirst

Happy Canada Day to our neighbors to the north, where half my relatives come from. I barely saw the sixth boro this June, so I had to catch up a bit, adding another day to the month to do so.  Over by the Bayonne Centerline yard, I saw three previously Bouchard boats all wearing or […]

Ever F Class 2

Installment 1 was here.  Guess the loa, breadth, and teu? So far, I’ve seen Ever Focus and Ever Forward . . . although it appears I’ve not posted my Ever Forward photos.  I do that sometimes by chance. So Ever Fortune . . . entered service in November 2020.  It’s one of the newest vessels […]

A new assist boat in town bringing 3800 hp to the job? Right . . .  I was kidding.  It’s Jones Act non-compliant anyhow.  Genesis Eagle is a 6140 hp pin boat.    JRT Moran and Capt. Brian McAllister do an assist of an ULCV. Pegasus gives Mount St. Elias an assist as it moves […]

Justine has been back in the sixth boro awhile now after quite some time away. She’s a 1982 product of Jakobson, one of the last half dozen built there.  From this angle she reminds me of Siberian Sea, now Mike Azzolino.  She works with 4000 hp. Recent days have seen a convergence of the Cape-class, […]

Sum of the Parts 4

Interesting name . . . I thought it was the number “3” in Arabic, but I was wrong.  Anyone know the reference? Clever logo . . . Feel like Wheel of Fortune yet? I can tell you that’s Capt. Brian . . . and you can probably tell me the location, by the tall tapered […]

Marjorie B. McAllister is one of those tugs that confused me when I first started paying attention.  Below the house is down, and and here the hydraulics have raised it up to look over Bulkmaster. Ava M. McAllister‘s elegant lines are shown off as she assists a tanker to the Arthur Kill. Cohoes on the […]

Remember Laura Maersk, the unusual tow from back in mid-June?  An engine room explosion disabled her, and she had to be towed in for repairs.  Well . . .  below are her tracks from yesterday . . .  first sea trials . . . aka a “test drive” and then she made a beeline for […]
